Description: Written or cowritten by American Indians to reflect the Indian point of view, this series covers the cultural history of the diverse tribes that comprise the Indian Nations of North America. Each book opens with a folk tale, legend, or creation story that sets the scene, each title includes information on the origins of the tribe, its way of life, key historical events, religions or spiritual life and traditions, family life, contemporary life, and the future envisioned for a specific Indian nation.

Oral tradition is particularly significant to the Cherokee, because they did not have a written language until 1821. Beginning with the tribe's legends and folktales passed on for generations, this title covers the historical background (including the Trail of Tears), arts and crafts, religion and medicine, government, traditional ceremonies, clothing, food, homes, and modern life of the Cherokee. Cherokee women were distinguished for their basket-weaving skills, and Cherokee "conjurers" contributed many herbal remedies that are used in holistic medicine today.
